With excellent real estate locations providing high visibility, easy accessibility, and plenty of customer traffic, Dunkin’ Donuts is always a strong opportunity from the net leasing investment perspective. Due to constant replenishment of food and beverage supply, inherent risks that may be found in other retail businesses are less of a concern. Dunk Donut’s lot sizes are usually smaller depending on property location, and are likewise able to be repurposed down the road. Lower pricing and lower rents tend to go hand in hand, and this creates desirable opportunities for investors. Often times rent bumps will be found in the leases, adding another beneficial aspect for lease consideration.
